Plenty of factories use pressurized liquids and gases in their manufacturing processes. A pressurized water is commonly used during various processes to prepare or wash down materials and work pieces. The pressurized gases include those used to power paint sprays, blowers for cleaning, and hydrocarbon gases used to fire up torches and other devices that produce fire. The pressure of the liquids and gases must be regulated to prevent damages to the delivery and storage systems that can result to catastrophic consequences. A pressure gauge is used to track pressure values and warn the maintenance or supervising personnel of any abnormal pressure. The pressure gauge not only helps ensure a smooth operation but also plays an integral role to protecting the safety of the workers.
Moisture meters also play an important role to safety since humidity within the working areas can affect the workers. But moisture control is primarily used for creating the best conditions for manufacturing processes. An adhesive or paint can have problems with bonding strength and appearance when exposed to incompatible moisture levels.
